More like Bandai asked them to take them down and they agreed to do so.

Can't say for certain if it was a nice ask or a cease-and-desist ask, but "super pissed" more accurately describes how some entitled fans are acting on Twitter.
Yeah the super pissed part was just me paraphrasing the fans on twitter, which is why I started with "apparently". I don't think it was a case of Bandai over reacting and "going after the fans" as stated in some tweets.

Plus there are more pressing concerns here.

WE NOW HAVE TWO PRNS TOY LINE ABBREVIATIONS! THIS IS MADNESS!

Can't the Ninja Steel toy line be abbreviated to "PRNStl" or "PRNSt"...?

Oh yes, this was totally the surprise.

Apparently Bandai is super pissed that the Ninja Steel images were leaked and asked Rangercrew and Tokunation to take them down.
So if I posted them on tumblr should I take them down?

@ maslego: Pretty much.

@ andr0s81: I see. My bad.

Anyway, that green shuriken...thing. I wonder if that thing could be used with the Megazord as either a ZB component, a weapon or as part of the throne gimmick.

Dude, that has been the bane of my existence for MONTHS as parts of my site use the abbreviations to simplify things. It SUCKS.

Yes, yes, bashing ZordBuilder continously will make it go away.

The green shuriken thing looked more like a role-play toy to me at first...until I saw the figure. It'll most likely be a ZB component...maybe something for the port on the Ninja Steel Megazord's right shoulder.

Why would Zord Builder go anywhere? It's a successful gimmick.

It was a bad attempt at sarcasm.

It's a very succesful gimmick and it's too late to stop it. Speaking of ZB, I hope the new Megazord has a male ZB on its back similar to the port Shurikenjin has.

I don't see why it wouldn't.

My only real criticism about Battle Suit Megazord (My alt name for Surikenjin) is that the dump truck somehow looks fatter, and the dragon wings don't separate.

Anyone able to imagine how the wings could connect to Bison King Megazord's Gun? (The Zord already has an English name, might as well stick megazord to the end)

OMG, so many problems with the megazord.
1. Every zord looks like crap
2. Aside from the obvious, why does the wolf zord (yeah, that's what I'm calling it) look like it's molded in to the train zord?
3. Of course they cut down on the dragon's sword. They always have to ruin the sword. And the wings are molded together.
4. Why the f*** do they need a zord builder port on the shoulder of the yellow zord? Huh? What's that gonna do for it? Other than stick out to the side in vehicle mode. Glad they didn't put on on the dragon's head.
5. Unlike past seasons, they don't seem to have made any *improvements* on the old design. Mainly what I would have expected them to change for the better would be the ottomo-nin. The red zord is still the same. Still got his arms molded in a bent position, and still got his legs stuck together with a fist stuck up there. Not that there's much they can do with that, but at least change the arms.

Also, the head looks retarded. Will totally get the figures to continue the action hero line, and I love those things. But I'm sticking with my BOJ mech this time. So glad I got Bison King and the auxilaries when I did. I was second guessing them constantly, but they were fun and this confirms it was so worth it.

Also, a sarcastic yay for more unnecessary unpainted figures to go with cheap crappy unpainted weapons that nobody will buy except for cheap parents who get it for their kids because it's power rangers. They will love it because it's power rangers

Well, the "fatter" dump truck space could allow the 5 inch figures to sit inside to "pilot" the Megazord. The dragon wings piece has a hole and a peg on it so Bison King's gun will probably feature the opposite parts to make it fit.

compairing Shurikenjin to this megazord, I'm actualy ok with it. They did actualy improve some details while others suffered. Check around the dragon ears and Megazord head for the minor details.

It looks like a zord builder port on the back might be there based on the wings' mold. Though an alternate possibility is there is a square peg for those wings too as there is a ZB port on the sword tail (also explains how the wings will connect for King Shuriken Megazord's weapon). Combined with that, the Port on the Sholder may be to connect to a female zord port that hangs out over the back, witch if that is the case, doesn't make sense as the arm and wings already have female ports they can use to connect to a male port back there.

People saying the wolf looks molded in aren't looking close enough at the picture. There is clearly space that looks like the wolf was molded separate from the train rather than part of it. Going off of how cheep ZB molds are, a molded in Wolf would not have any space to the sides or by the tail and at best, have it's spot painted with white. Think Budget Samurai Gigazord. (So glad they didn't do Budget versions of the ultra combo for megaforce and super megaforce)

I do have some other concerns, but they'll likely be addressed soon enough.

For those complaining about the Megazord it's still not to late (or expensive) to get your Ninninger Mecha.

I really don't get the complaining about the Megazord. It's not like the Ninninger mecha look different design wise. The only difference I see is just missing paint and the wings not separating. Otherwise it's the same thing that debuted 2 years ago.

Yeah, the hate for the Megazord is honestly kind of perplexing. It's literally Shurikenjin with a little less gold...

Here's a simple combo of with Red's zord in the Megazord even if I couldn't bend the legs...
